A Coarse Acting sketch (inspired by the Feydeau farce A Flea in Her Ear) written and directed by David Pearson (stage name David Barnaby). which won the best script prize in the World Coarse Acting Championship at the Questors Theatre in 1980, organised by Michael Green, the author of the best selling book The Art of Coarse Acting.
(…) a hilarious exploration of the art of coarse acting…that is performances which are deliberately designed to be prolifically bad on every level!!
